3 More Men Shot In Broad Daylight

CHICAGO (CBS) — After a bloody Memorial Day holiday that left six people dead and 19 others injured, three more men were shot and wounded in broad daylight on Tuesday.

First, a 22-year-old man was shot in the chest at 10:27 a.m. in the 11700 block of South Yale Avenue in the West Pullman neighborhood, police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak said.

The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

About 30 minutes later, a 19-year-old man was shot in the leg and abdomen at 4043 W. Lexington St. in the North Lawndale neighborhood, police said. His condition was not known, but fire officials said he was not taken away in an ambulance – suggesting he might have died.

In a third incident, a man was shot multiple times at 5412 S. Loomis Blvd. in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The shooting happened at 12:11 p.m. Kubiak said. A 42-year-old man was shot in the leg and buttocks and was taken to Stroger Hospital of Cook County, she said.

    • What!?!

      I agree. As far as I’m concerned, this is pest control, plain and simple. The vermin are killing each other off, saving all of us (you know, those of us who work and are productive members of society) from having to support them for their entire lives. Just wish that they would have better aim so that they hit their targets, and not the innocent kids a block down the road from them.
